    About the Author(s)

    Igor Zakharovich Bondarevsky was born on 12 May 1913 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Bondarevsky was ranked among the 15 strongest players in the world and was among the first 27 players to be awarded the grandmaster title by FIDE in 1950. His career peak was reached in 1940 by sharing first place with Andor Lilienthal at the 12th USSR championship in Moscow, ahead Paul Keres, Isaac Boleslavsky and Mikhail Botvinnik. Bondarevsky missed his big chance to play for the World Chess Championship in 1950. He qualified to play in the World Championship Candidates Tournament at Budapest 1950 but he was unable to play because of illness. He died on 14 June 1979 in Pyatigorsk, Russia.
